We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again. It’s always hard to know how to respond to a tragic death or serious injury. But perhaps one way we in the media should not respond is by making a list. With a stuntman on Quantum of Solace in a coma after a car accident on the film’s Italian set, Maxim.com leaps to respond with a list of “Most Tragic Stunt Accidents.” We know enough about list-making to bet that at some point they debated numbering and ranking the list, then congratulated themselves for their good taste at leaving the list unadorned. “For after all, how can one person’s death be any more tragic than another’s?” someone asked. Then they got some coffee.
